Clear-sighted campaigns: Strategic Control in Search and Shopping

11:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | English | Main stage talk

Brille24 is one of Europe’s leading online opticians and is now becoming part of EssilorLuxottica – the largest eyewear company in the world, with over €7.5B in annual revenue. As a result, Brille24’s digital marketing landscape is starting from scratch: Thorsten’s teams must build a new strategy for omnichannel commerce with over 2,000 local and independent opticians as sales points and an existing online shop. Learn how the search user is still the factor to success for both channels – online and offline – in Brille24’s marketing. Thorsten explains how Brille24 optimizes search campaign setup for online, offline, and either/or conversions, and how this setup is facilitated and executed by automation. Moreover, he discusses past and current challenges candidly, describing strategy and outcomes related to audience lists, click intent, dirty data, and local partner expectations. You can expect a multitude of sharp insights that will clarify what the best practice in omnichannel looks like – and what remains to be solved.
